We are a Flemish couple and we offer you a room in our family home. Breakfast is included. Please enjoy the back garden when the weather is nice. Neighbourhood: " Bosland",indoor skiing Peer, outside swimming pool Eksel, tennis courts and leisure centre. Bus stop nearby to Hasselt. If you would like to go into Hechtel or Eksel, you'll need a car or a bicycle.Smoking allowed on the terrace. We enjoy hosting people in our home, and hope to welcome honest, kindred spirits.
We offer a single room ( side of the house) and a double room ( with two separate beds/ front of the house). Both rooms can be booked as well. This advert is about the double room that has a sink in the room as well. Towels provided. We have a small bathroom with a bath and two bathroom sinks ( possibility to shower but be careful not to soak the room....) Small living room with TV if you want more privacy, but open plan so only a main wall and no doors. We would like to maintain some contact with the guests that stay in our home. Possibility to share the large, main living /TV room with us. No TV in the rooms upstairs. We love the Airbnb-spirit and would like to make you comfortable at our home.

Make yourself at home ( downstairs rooms are shared + garden) We serve breakfast. You are welcome to sit by the fire in the winter and watch TV together with us, or use the small TV room if you prefer some privacy. You can also relax in your room undisturbed. Evening meals can be provided by arrangement by us, but generally there is no guest cooking in the kitchen - although if you are keen cooks this can be accommodated. Please let us know in time if you want us to serve you supper. Requirements can be met.

1. Available to give information and help you find your way around.
2. Close to a cycling route which might be interesting for keen bikers / "Bosland" at your disposal.
3. We live alongside a main road. Please check the location first before you book. Positive: facing the east so sunshine and an invigorating spring/summer feel ( that is when the sun is out in Belgium...) and lots of books about the UK, our favourite holiday destination. We live in a lovely place where we walk the dog every day in a variety of green surroundings ( meadows, forest, dirt tracks, sandy roads), and during the weekend we enjoy cycling with the family in "Bosland"
4. Rather steep stairs to the first floor so this might be a problem if you have "mobility problems" ?
Outras coisas a ter em conta
We have a well behaved dog Beau, who is not allowed upstairs in the rooms. He has his own doggie bed downstairs. He can also stay in a separate room so you'll never see him if you are afraid of dogs.
I am a teacher trainer at a teacher training college. I now work 50%! I love to experience nature - while walking with my dog, enjoying a garden or being close to horses. I also like the seaside and everything that is linked with beaches and water/ clean air/ sports such as sailing.
When not in Belgium we like to visit the UK, our favourite holiday destination because of the beautiful gardens and many places of interest.
My husband is retired and together we have more time off to enjoy helping guests maximize their stay with us.
I hope to inspire others to participate in this unique way of "living'; meeting people, sharing experiences and our family home which we renovated to our liking. We also tried to design our own garden and do most of the garden work. Hope you'll like it although there is always room for improvement....Lots of books around too... welcome kindred spirits.
